BLUFFTON, S.C. – The Lee women's golf team turned in a top-five finish at the Battle of Old South hosted by the University of North Carolina Pembroke on Sunday afternoon as the Lady Flames carded a 300 team total and finished tied for fourth with a 36-hole score of 597.

The ladies from SCAD-Savannah led from start to finish after firing rounds of 292-290-582 and won by eight strokes over second place St.
Leo.  Florida Southern was third at 594 followed by Lee and Wingate.

Flagler (604) and fellow GSC member West Georgia (604 tied for fifth while host UNC-Pembroke (610), North Georgia (611) and Mount Olive (612) rounded out the top 10 of the 18-team field.

Senior All-American Caroline Moore posted two rounds of 74 to finish in a tie for 12th for the medalist honor this weekend.

Sophomore Anne Hedegaard improved three shots from her opening round 76 and shot a team-best 1-over par 73 to place in a tie for 17th. Sophomore Haverly Harrold carded a 6-over 150 and was tied for 21 while senior Sam Burrus (73-78-151) was just one shot back. Sophomore Annika Gino tallied back-to-back rounds of 77 and was tied for 39thand freshman Brooke Benedetto shot an 81 and was second among six individual competitors.

St. Leo's Amanda Jakobsson turned in a final round 68 and was 4-under-par for the tournament to capture the individual championship. Wingate's Diana McDonald matched Jakobsson's 68 and was just one shot back with a 151 total.

"We played well most of the day but gave some shots away coming in which hurt us. There were a lot of positives this weekend, the majority of the holes we played we executed well," said assistant coach and former All-GSC standout, Bernadette Little. "There are a few areas we can learn from and improve to get ready for our next event in North Georgia in a couple of weeks."  

The Lady Flames will take a couple of weeks off before getting back on the links on Oct. 16-17 at the LeeAnn Noble Memorial hosted by the University of North Georgia.
